Once again, another student showcase and a part of SOTA’s never ending string of exhibition in the gallery – RHIZOME! Opening last friday, this showcase features the works of the year 3 and 4 visual artists who are just acclimatizing to their specialisations – sculpture, painting, new media, ceramics and design concepts. Even so, most of their works carry a more sophisticated and delicate touch in comparison to their peers elsewhere, each work carrying an injection of personality by the aspiring artist who made it. Keep a lookout for the masterful ceramics pieces and mechanical sculptural works; they certainly caught my eye! Definitely worth any art-lovers time!
“The showcase theme is taken from a concept by Deleuze and Guattari, found in their book, A Thousand Plateaus. Rhizome explores the idea of a rhizomatic network where various things come together to form connections. This network is free and heterogeneous – it is without beginning or end, always in the middle, ever moving and “becoming”. The rhizome model exemplifies the creative development of our Year 3 and Year 4 students, where new ideas emerge, take root and flourish.”
This exhibition will end on 20 May 2012. So do drop by!
